Multiple Blog/User Permissions

I am trying to setup Orchard for a new website. The situation is as follows:

The main part of the site, homepage main blog and pages can only be edited by the Editors.

However each member of the site, is allowed to have his/her own blog. I want them to be able to sign in and only be able to add posts to their own blogs.

I assumed this would be possible by setting the owner of the blog, but when that user logs in, there are no options available to add posts to his/her posts. Giving more permissions (to manage blogs) gives them the blog admin interface, but they can also look into other blogs that don't belong to them. I'd like the relevant user to only see his/her own blog(s).

Also is it possible to assign edit permissions to various users for various blogs.

if Edit own blog posts and Publish or unpublish own blog post permissions don't work for you, please file a bug.

It seems the bug will be solved in Orchard 1.4: http://orchard.codeplex.com/workitem/16387. I was looking into the same thing myself and noticed this isn't possible yet.
